On-Campus Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is open during this time of COVID-19.
The Food Pantry is specifically to serve campus community members who are experiencing exacerbated financial and food insecurity, especially during the COVID-19 crisis. 

Location: The food pantry is located in the Student Diversity Center at 3216 N. 13th St. (the light blue house right across from the Center for Intercultural and Civic Engagement/Yellow House). Please feel free to come on in and find the pantry located in the nook in the kitchen. Take what you need and simply log the items so that we can replenish the inventory. No identifying information is required. 

Hours: Open Monday through Sunday, 8am – 10pm. Note: the SDC where the food pantry is housed is only accessible with your campus ID—so please don't forget it! 

To donate to the Food Pantry, please contact Andy Cornell or Marta Cady.

As a campus community, we strive to promote the well-being and success of all of our Puget Sound community (all students, staff, and faculty). In our purpose to support our Puget Sound, specifically those struggling with food insecurities and/or lack of consistent access to nutritious and/or affordable foods, the Center for Intercultural and Civic Engagement (CICE) hosts an on-campus food pantry. We respect the identities and backgrounds of all members on this campus and we strive to make this food pantry a welcoming place for all who need its contents. We invite you to visit the food pantry during the hours listed below as needed.

Please email Andy Cornell acornell@pugetsound.edu if you have questions or comments, and feel free to use the suggestions/question box within the pantry. 

During this time and to minimize contact, if you would like to donate, please use our general donations box on the porch of the Center for Intercultural & Civic Engagement. We do have staff that are monitoring the Food Pantry regularly.
